Recently, I discovered that many sequels are actually good movies. Now I’m wondering if there are any prequels that are worth watching. Backstory, as a rule, should stay as backstory. There’s a reason why it’s not included in the main story.
Besides, we all know what’s going to happen because the original flick is already cast in stone. Gee, will Anakin kill Obi-Wan on Mustafar? Oh, I suppose not.
Here’s a list of prequels that might be actually good. Bigger list here, if you think I’ve missed some.
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly – a terrific movie, but I didn’t know it’s a prequel.
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom – oh yeah, that is a prequel!
My list only has two movies. I guess prequels really do, for the most part, suck.
